Book examines all aspects of nutrition for dogs and cats

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. - A newly revised comprehensive book on cat and dog nutrition contains more than just a cosmetic makeover. It looks at current nutritional fads and fallacies, and provides a road map for choosing food. It also considers the nutrient needs of neonatal puppies and kittens and such issues as diet and dental health and nutritional needs of pets with cancer.

The second edition of "Canine and Feline Nutrition: A Resource for Companion Animal Professionals" was published in August by Mosby, a Harcourt Health Sciences company. The 592-page book was co-written with Daniel P. Carey and Leighann Daristotle, who are veterinarians for the Iams Co., and Diane A. Hirakawa, vice president for Iams research and development.

Case is a lecturer in the University of Illinois animal sciences department, where she teaches courses on companion animals. She is a nationally recognized expert in pet behavior and nutrition, and also is the author of "The Dog: Its Behavior, Nutrition and Health," published in 1999.

The new Mosby book is organized into six sections: nutrient requirements of dogs and cats; pet-food production and selection; feeding management throughout all stages of life; feeding problems; fads and fallacies; and dietary management of nutritionally responsive diseases. Each section contains extensive updates based on new research. The section on pet food covers labeling, regulations, a close-up look at the different types of foods, including homemade and special veterinary diets, and an evaluation of commercial pet foods.

The book, Case said, should be of particular value to veterinarians, an
